Following the July 9 recall for its Focus vehicles for a powertrain software issue, Ford (F) has issued a recall for its 2019 Ranger SuperCab pickup trucks. The recall affects the right front seat belt, which may have been improperly assembled.
According to Ford, the seat belts may not “adequately restrain occupants” during a crash, which could increase the risk of injury.
The recall affects approximately 7,580 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories with another 400 vehicles in Canada. The Ranger SuperCab vehicles were produced from June 18, 2018, to June 18, 2019, at the company’s Warren, Michigan, assembly plant.
To repair the seat belt issue, Ford dealers will inspect the restraint and replace the right front seat belt assembly if necessary.
Ford said it has not received any reports of injury or accident from the recalled seat belts.
The Ford recall number is 19S23.
Shares of Ford stock were up 2.85 percent as of 2:15 p.m. ET on Friday.
